Be-Leaf in Yourself

What is your purpose?

Why are you  here?

Is your reason for being

The way you appear?

leaf--pine needle

Are you evergreen

Like the spruce or the pine?

With prickly sharp needles 

And a prickly sharp mind?


leaf-mapleAre you more like the maple

Whose leaves in the fall

Provide color and beauty

To one and to all?

leaf-cactus spine


Are you like the cactus

Whose leaves are like spines

Protecting the plant

From the dangerous kinds?

Are you a leaf that provides

Comfort, safety, or food?

Just find your purpose

To be understood.
